Fabricio Werdum Talks Big Nog Rematch: I’m A More Complete Professional Now


2006 was the first time Fabricio Werdum and Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira squared off, at Pride Critical Countdown. The match saw Nogueira walk away victorious by way of decision. Since that time, both men have joined the UFC. Nogueira enjoyed a short stinit as the Interim UFC champion, while Werdum has scroed consecutive wins over Roy Nelson and Mike Russow since joining the UFC.

The two are set to square off at UFC on FX: Werdum vs. Nogueira this saturday, and Werdum spoke recently about his preparation for his upcoming bout, revealing that he has worked extensively on his striking game. Vai Cavalo also talks about the first fight with Nogueira, saying that he is more experienced and well rounded this time around.

  • This is a great fight…Werdum is not the same guy who fought in 2006. He is much better rounded. But in this division anything can happen as bigfoot showed against reem

    • I think Nogueira's advantage is everywhere. He's way more experienced on the feet, and his Jits is serious

    • I think The Reem handed Bigfoot that win on a silver platter. AO has only himself, his ego and stupidity, to blame for his loss to Silva.

  • I think it's Werdum's fight to lose. His ground game has always been good, but now his stand-up looks great and dynamic and he's become quite aggressive in his attack. That said, Big Nog, although old, beat-up and broken down, is still a serious threat.

    I'm looking forward to this fight. It should be good.

  • Have to take Werdum on this one.
